Radical moral disagreement in contemporary health care: A Roman catholic perspective

Journal of Medicine and Philosophy 19 (2):183-200 (1994)
Abstract
This paper addresses the moral challenges presented by the existence of radical moral disagreement in contemporary health care. I argue that there is no neutral moral perspective for understanding and resolving these challenges, but that they must be formulated and resolved from within the various perspectives that generate the disagreement. I then explore the natural law tradition's approach to these issues as a test case for my thesis. Keywords: moral conflict, moral perplexity, natural law, radical moral disagreement, toleration CiteULike Connotea Del.icio.us What's this?
